The variety of Victorian wit was incredible. Irreverent, rich in bad puns and poor taste, it reflected the vigour of a nation rising to the peak of its power. Collapse of Stout Party was the culmination of many a joke - and they liked it.
In the first of two programmes Richard Stilgoe takes a look at Victorian humour and the people who created it, opening a window on one of the most fascinating of ages when stout parties' collapsed in unending profusion.
Also taking part:
JUDY BENNETT , ANNABEL HUNT CHARLES COLLINGWOOD Based on the book by RONALD PEARSALL

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
